The location is South-side Jamaica, a rough and tough neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, an uninsured single parent who falls ill after returning home from vacation. She is taken to a hospital, where Salome McBryant diagnoses her with having black fever disease, which has done a significant amount of damage to her liver. With a couple of months to live, Babita's only hope of survival is a costly liver transplant. But with no health insurance, the chance of surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash. And that's when Barnes, her only son, along with his best friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms are in for a few surprises and a whole lot of heat in this intense drama which tells two remarkable tales of crime and redemption.

Review quote

"Thomson's ear for street-slang vernacular is effective in bringing his characters to life and creates a chillingly real backdrop." - Kirkus Discoveries Review"'Three Black Boys: Tomorrow After Supper' is two books in one or two parts of one book. This is one novel you don't want to dismiss out of turn because it just may surprise you. This book not only exposes a disease (Black Fever Disease) that few have even heard of. But shows how desperate things can get for those living on a low income or in poverty. The second half of the book is just as interesting and entertaining. Also, it reminds me of "Dante's Inferno" as the boys get a chance to redeem themselves." - Night Reader Reviews
